What is your history with sewing?

I started hand sewing when I was a child, and learned how to use a machine, more or less, a couple of decades ago. But I'm still only a beginner.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I have a basic Janome sewing machine and basic Janome serger. They are at home, so I can't tell you anything more about them.

When you make a mistake while sewing, what do you do?

Cry. Not really. It depends on the mistake. Usually it's just some threads to rip out. If it's something like cutting through the fabric, I'll see if I can patch over it with an applique. If not, there's always a need for rags.

What's your favorite thing you've ever sewn? Can we see a picture?

Probably the skirt I sewed for my daughter years ago. If I find a picture, I'll show it. I can't believe how much wear she's gotten out of it.

If skill, time, and resources were no issue, what would you sew right now?

Pants. No, bags. No...dresses. Not being able to commit to one thing is a problem for me.

Introduction

I have very basic sewing skills and a lot of cloth staring at me, wondering when I will do something with it. I hope meeting people in this group will encourage me to start sewing regularly.
